Hello al-Qaeda, goodbye America

According to an article in the Asia Times, the Pakistan government has reached an agreement with militants in the Waziristan region of the country keep hands off Taliban and al-Qaeda forces there. Waziristan borders Afghanistan.

In addition, the government has agreed not to arrest Osama bin Laden, his deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri, Taliban leader Mullah Omar and a list of others wanted by various international authorities and to release a number who have already been arrested.

This, of course, is happening at a time when fighting in Afghanistan is heating up. This is not good news.
